BB Incline Bench - warmup (65/10, 115/5) max sets (130/8, 130/7) .. (+1 rep on 1st set, +5 lbs on 2nd set)
BB Decline Bench- warmup (75/10, 125/5) max sets (145/6, 140/6).. (+1 rep on 1st set, +1 rep on 2nd set)
BB Rows- warmup (65/10, 95/5) max sets (115/8, 115/8) .. (PR- +10 lbs on both sets, cheated slightly on last rep of last set)
Lat Pulldown (Nautilus machine) warmup (80/10, 130/5) max sets (150/10, 150/8)
BB Curls- warmup (40/10, 50/5) max sets (80/3, 70/8) .. (+10lbs on 1st set, +2 reps on 2nd set)
Skull crushers- warmup (30/10, 50/5) max sets (60/4, 50/10)
Only dissappointing part of this workout was SkullCrushers. I got 3 less reps on my 1st work set. This could be due in part to exercise sequence. Last week, Skull Crushers were last in my routine. Today, due to equipment availability, I moved it up ahead of Lat Pulldowns and BB Curls. Nonetheless, I'll continue with 60lbs and improve from 4 reps.
With BB Curls, last week I hit 8 reps with 70 lbs, so I wanted to try for 80 (my gym only has 10 lb increments on curl bars). 80 felt heavy, but I still managed 3 reps. Again, I'll use 80 again next week, and look to get more than 3 reps.
